MyVGA version 1.1 released
      #8842 - 02/22/04 08:23 PM

The development team of MyVGA is happy to release version 1.1.0 of the program. A lot

of work went into this release and we believe it?s a solid foundation for all future

work on the program.

New Features in version 1.1:

? File-swapping. When changing video-mode, MyVGA can replace particular files with

a version specially designed for the selected video-mode. So you can use large icons

in Pocket Informant for example when in VGA mode, and automatically use smaller icons

when you switch to QVGA.

? Reverse landscape mode putting the buttons on the left when in landscape. This

mode is still in testing but is probably 95% complete. There is a slight flicker on

some devices in this mode but it is still very useful, especially for using IR keyboards

in landscape, so we left this mode in the release.

? Timing settings. The user has the ability to manually change the screen timing

settings to fine-tune reverse landscape mode. This is for experienced users only and

you change the settings at your own risk.

Features in version 1.1:

? Switch Toshiba e800/e805 Pocket PC to any of the following resolutions:
o 240x320 - Portrait, standard resolution and upside down
o 320x240 - Landscape, left- or right-handed
o 480x640 - Portrait, normal or upside
o 640x480 - Landscape, left- or right-handed;

? Change Fonts used for menus, and set the sizes of scrollbars. Settings are

stored independently for each video mode;

? Store/restore the registry-settings when changing video mode. This allows the

user to readjust other programs to selected resolution (application must have the

ability to change its settings). You only have to specify which registry entries must be

stored. You do not specify real values, only their names. Once the registry key names

are entered that setting can be adjusted directly in your application. You can change

settings (e.g. FontSize in Reader-program) any time without the need to adjust the

settings of MyVGA. MyVGA tracks changing of registry entries and stores/restores current

settings automatically and for each video mode individually.

? File-swapping. When changing video-mode, MyVGA can replace particular files with

a version specially designed for the selected video-mode. So you can use large icons

in Pocket Informant when in VGA mode, and automatically use smaller icons when you

switch to QVGA.

? Small and fast. MyVGA is written using C++, it does not require Visual-Basic- or

any other runtimes to be installed on the Pocket PC. Its size is about 100Kb and it

starts quickly.

? Command line support. MyVGA detects several command line parameters and can

switch video mode without using the GUI window. This is useful if you want to switch

modes from your favorite launcher.

? Does not require setup. The program consists of only one exe-file, which can be

placed in any folder.

MyVGA is an open source project released under the GNU Public License (GPL) and is

released free to the community. All public releases, source code, and program support

can be found at MyVGA Support .
